Essential tasks

  • Getting to know one another on a more profound level. Sharing within the team beyond surface details and opinions lays the foundation for trust.
  • Building second-level trust within the search team. This deeper layer of trust makes it possible for the search team to have difficult but important conversations.
  • Naming whether unanimity (everyone agrees), consensus (not everyone agrees, but those who don’t will not stand in the way), or majority (most agree) opinion will be the basis for taking action. Before any major actions are undertaken, the team must identify what level of agreement there must be prior to moving forward.
